Title
(EN) INSULATED FREIGHT COVER
(FR) COUVERCLE ISOLE POUR MARCHANDISES
Abstract
(EN)
A rod-supported insulated freight cover (10) for thermally protecting temperature-sensitive goods during transport. The freight cover (10) has a front cover (14), a rear cover (16), and a series of at least three consecutively ajoined, substantially rectangular panels of insulated material. The series has front panel (14a), a rear panel (16a) and intermediate panels (12) between the front and rear panels. The intermediate panels (12) are relatively coupled along crossbound seams (20) on two opposing edges to other panels. Some or all of the crossbound seams have rods longitudinally sewn therein. The rods (26) provide transverse support for the freight cover (10), facilitating its application and removal. The rods (26) also discourage the freight cover (10) from receding from the side of the container after application by providing beam-like support which prevents the freight cover (10) from falling into center voids or concavities resulting from specific load patterns and uneven load heights. Thus, a flush fit to the sidewalls is maintained throughout transport and air mixture on the sides of the container is substantially inhibited.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un couvercle isolé pour marchandises, supporté par une tige (10) et assurant la protection thermique de produits sensibles à la température, pendant leur transport. Le couvercle de marchandises (10) comporte un couvercle avant (14), un couvercle arrière (16) et une série d'au moins trois panneaux sensiblement rectangulaires et consécutifs en un matériau isolé. Cette série comporte un panneau avant (14a), un panneau arrière (16a) et des panneaux intermédiaires (12) entre les panneaux avant et arrière. Les panneaux intermédiaires (12) sont accouplés, le long de coutures transversales (20) ménagées sur deux bords opposés, à d'autres panneaux. Une partie ou la totalité des coutures comprennent des tiges qui y sont cousues dans le sens longitudinal. Les tiges (26) constituent un support transversal pour le couvercle de marchandises (10), ce qui facilite son installation et son retrait. Ces tiges (26) empêchent également le couvercle (10) de glisser du côté du conteneur après installation, en constituant un support de type poutre qui empêche le couvercle (10) de tomber dans des vides ou des cavités centrales produits par des configurations de charges spécifiques ou des hauteurs de charge non homogènes. Ainsi, le couvercle est maintenu de manière ajustée contre les parois latérales pendant toute la durée du transport, ce qui permet d'éviter tout mélange d'air sur les côtés du conteneur.
